This unique gathering of research scientists, educators, students, resource managers and conservation professionals is expected to draw an estimated 3,000-4,000 in-person visitors to the host city of Grand Rapids, Michigan over the period May 14 to 20, 2022.

Plenary speakers will be complemented by multicultural and multidisciplinary sessions and events which will broaden our horizons and strengthen our connections so that we can effectively respond to the rapid changes taking place in our shared aquatic ecosystems.
